What to do Post Juice Fast to help keep the weight off?

A cleanse is an amazing way to detox the body, the fresh fruits and vegetables cleanse and allow the bodies detoxifying organs to do their work whilst not wasting energy on digesting.  It really is an incredible way to kick start, snap out of bad habits and set yourself on a path to a healthier lifestyle.  But what if you want to lose more weight.  You have kick-started the journey, but need a little more help and you have a little bit further to go on your weight loss journey.  Enter Schkinny Days program….

We have created a program that combines the fantastic benefits of a diet rich in fresh raw fruits and vegetables with a scientifically validated weight loss method.  This program not only gives you an achievable, sustainable and effortless way to lose weight, it is also nourishing and nutritious .  

How does it work?  It is a way of eating where you fast every second day.  So one day eat normal, then next day restrict your intake to 500 calories, next day back to normal, then fast again, and so on. 

Why do it? Studies among overweight and obese adults show it may make you lose 3-8% of your body weight in 2-12 weeks and seems particularly effective with middle aged people, plus it seems to be easier to stick to and produces more fat loss than general caloric restriction (ie. Restricting your calories every day for an extended period of time, like 6 months)

Why I love it?  This has become such an easy way of life for me because it is such an easy way to manage my weight.  On Sunday morning, I didn’t baulk at having a bacon and egg roll with a hot chocolate because I knew that Monday would be my Schkinny Day again.  I have no fear and worry about what I eat on the weekend as I want to enjoy it, but with my set Monday, Wednesday, Friday modified fasting days, it takes all the thinking away from weight management.

 What the science says?  During intermittent fasting your body initiates important cellular recycle and repair processes (known as autophagy) and also hormonal changes that make stored fat more accessible.  Lower insulin levels, higher growth hormone levels and increased amounts of norepinephrine (noradrenlin) all increase the breakdown of body fat and facilitate its use for energy.  For this reason, short term fasting has been shown to increase metabolic rate by 3.6%-14%, helping you to burn more calories

Who can do it?  Anyone!  The reason I love this program so much is that its suitable for anyone not only trying to lose weight, but also people who want a fool proof method to maintain their weight without having to worry about the mid-life creep (that time in your life where somehow 5kgs crept up on you without you noticing).  Although, I saw everyone, we don’t recommend the program for pregnant or breastfeeding mums, but it is fantastic for AFTER breastfeeding.  You can check out my own video experience here. https://youtu.be/aO6Vuzh8oUM 

How to order? Online as usual.  It is a 6 week subscription program, so when you sign up it is only for 6 weeks, but you can always keep going.  This is great way to live your life, and it has definitely changed mine.  This is now a lifestyle for me.  Please let me know if you have any questions either email or phone 1300 021 601.  You can order here: http://www.schkinnymaninny.com.au/products/alternate-day-fasting-program
